Nancy and Sluggo: The Final Chapter

While I can recognize the special and bizarre genius of Ernie Bushmiller I've never been able to take much of a liking to Nancy and her pals. So when I came across this horrifying house ad for Comics on Parade #69 I knew I had to share it. Any strip that depicts those miserable little urchins getting gacked is okay with me.
Sparkler #91 (Jan-Feb 1950).

  1. That's too bad... I'm a big fan of Bushmiller's "Nancy" strip.

    To each his own.

  2. Yeah, but why is that kid telling his friend exactly where they are and what they're doing in the first panel? I mean, presumably they both know. Was it a surprise for his birthday? Had he suddenly recovered from amnesia?

    There's a story there.

  3. Way cool! But I am a little disapointed that comic was not using real corpses to sell their product. **sigh**

  4. That's weird, but not quite as weird as Jim Scribner's "Theatre Group" over at Yahoo.com, where he depicts Fitzi Ritz complaining about how hard it is for a single Jewish girl to raise a mulatto child on her own:
